Among all the Japanese Maples, Inaba-shidare is one of the best and most visually stunning. Compact enough for any garden, it is and covered with gorgeous red, lacy leaves that cascade down from its upright-growing trunk. New foliage comes in the spring as a deep reddish-purple that can appear almost black. Throughout spring and summer the leaves undergo changes into a much more vivid red color, and finally in autumn burst into a bright fiery crimson.

• Compact dome shape with arching branches
• Seasonal kaleidoscope of colors
• Hardy to minus 20
• The pick of the red-leaved Japanese Maples
• Happy in shade and ordinary garden conditions

Inaba-shidare is a vigorously growing shrub that can reach its full height and width within ten to 15 years. This fast rate of growth will help it establish itself in your landscape design much faster than many similar varieties, and it will then bring you years of absolute visual delight.
